However, I question his talent evaluation and some of the deals he's made,
as well as some of the drafting
. He also has seemed to lose face with the recent goalie issues, and like a lot of GMs he's probably too stubborn for his own good. I think he might be a better President than GM.
Which draft/picks in particular do you have a problem with?
People bring up drafting a lot but I have yet to see it really quantified on a pick by pick basis. For example Nonis' wonderful 2007 draft picking Patrick White in the 1st round then Taylor Ellington shortly after.
